A biopic that prefers Humanizing over Idolizing!

Rajkumar Hirani's SANJU with Ranbir in his deadliest form, is a story of one lifetime that stretches over periods in bringing us a person's relationship with his father and a friend. When we sit in front of the screen, expecting the biopic to idolize Sanjay Dutt.. Hirani surprises us all by humanisi...(more)

A Spectacular and emotional look at the controversial life of Sanjay Dutt

Presenting a biopic on a man with so many shades and one who's lived a life of such extremes is a no mean feat. Hirani, in his signature style, takes you through Sanju's remarkable journey with the finesse and commitment it needs. In the film, Sanju's wife says that he's the king of bad choices, and...(more)

Ranbir Kapoor is the soul of this Sanjay Dutt biopic

Hirani's Sanjay Dutt, played by Ranbir Kapoor, is an ordinary person who feels and behaves like any of us. He doesn't behave like a Bollywood star and seems really low on confidence in his youth. The charisma of Ranbir Kapoor is at work here as he imitates Dutt's body language and mannerism with per...(more)

Ranbir Kapoor gives his career best performance in a film that attempts to glorify Sanjay Dutt

Sanju is undoubtedly Ranbir Kapoor's career best performance and will fetch him all the awards and recognition. Don't go looking for a fair and accurate depiction of Dutt's life and you won't be disappointed. Watch it for the sheer entertainment it provides and the unmatched versatility of Ranbir Ka...(more)

Ranbir Kapoor breathes life into the Sanjay Dutt biopic

It is not child's play to make a biopic, particularly on someone whose life has been splashed all over the tabloids, in excruciating detail. Given the kind of biopics we have seen in commercial mainstream Bollywood so far, Sanju has definitely raised the bar. Watch Sanju for Ranbir Kapoor, Rajkumar ...(more)

Ranbir Kapoor is superb, but what a startlingly dishonest Sanjay Dutt biopic this is

Kapoor's turn as Sanju Baba rises far beyond his physical transformation though. He delivers an immersive performance, especially in scenes of emotional intensity when the script is not using a farcical tone to soft pedal the hero's life choices. But even this gifted star cannot camouflage the reali...(more)

Arun Sundar

Second half did not match upto the excellent first and the film played out like a usual commercial one towards the end. In acting part, Ranbir and Vicki Kausal did really well in their respective roles. Songs amateurish except one song. Good production values. (more)
